The Alexandria Police Department (APD) has issued notice that another level three sex offender will be moving into Alexandria.
Calvin Maurice Larkins, 19, has a history of sexual conduct and contact with minor male and female victims. His conduct has included indecent exposure, fondling and penetration. Larkins was known to his victims.
Larkins will be moving to the vicinity of 3rd Avenue West and Union Street in Alexandria on Wednesday August 15. A community notification meeting is not planned. Bemidji Police Department is the investigating agency.
The APD releases this information pursuant to Minnesota Statute. Larkins has been convicted of criminal sexual conduct or another offense that requires registration with law enforcement. Larkins is not wanted by the police at this time and has served the sentence imposed on him.
The notification of his release is not intended to increase fear in the community, the police department emphasized. It is letting the public know because it believes that an informed public is a safer public.
The Alexandria Police Department, the supervising release agent, and the Minnesota Department of Corrections may not direct where the offender does or does not reside, nor can these agencies direct where he works or goes to school. The risk level of this offender has been determined based largely on his potential to re-offend based on his previous criminal behavior.
Convicted sexual and predatory offenders have always been released to live in communities. It wasn't until the passage of the Registration Act that law enforcement had an ability track the movement of these offenders after their initial release.
With the passage of the Community Notification Act, law enforcement may now share information about many of these offenders with the public.
Those who abuse the information to threaten, harass or intimidate a registered offender is unacceptable and such acts could be charged as a crime, according to the police department. Such abuses could potentially end the ability of law enforcement to provide these notifications.
Many of these offenders derive their power from the opportunity that secrecy provides, according to Alexandria Police Chief Rick Wyffels.
